Merrill Native Part of The Brew Crew


"This was my first time ever being on the slide, so I was pretty excited," said Elizabeth Lee as she showed me a picture of her on Bernie Brewers' slide. "So, this is normally just a typical day on the job"

For Elizabeth Lee of Merrill, that job is being a member of the Milwaukee Brewers' Brew Crew. The gameday staff that helps make the Miller Park experience even more enjoyable.

"We all take charge and supervise the activities to do there at Miller Park. We walk around and take fan pictures. We run the flags across the field. We dance on the dugouts during the 7th inning stretch. Everything that's fan-based is basically what we do.

There's more than 100 members of the Brew Crew and standing at just 5-foot-1, Elizabeth can get lost in the crowd. UNTIL she's standing 12 feet tall.

"I like to be the hot dog."

That's Elizabeth as one of the famous racing sausages.

"It's just heavy sometimes since I'm short. It looks like I have no legs because the costume is so big. Just trying my best. Turning those wheels, getting on my horse and just running."

Even the famous hot dog can get a little star struck at Miller Park.

"When Aaron Rodgers was there, luckily I got to race that day. I was doing the belt. I was doing "Clay Matthews (celebration dance). I was Packers all nine yards. I was hoping he was watching me the whole time."

Yes she's having fun, but Elizabeth has her eyes on the bigger prize. The end game for her is to end up in public relations in the sports world. She believes this experience with the Brewers, whenever it comes to an end, will get her there.

"They give out great internships, too, for public relations. So I'm hoping to get my foot in the door. Get a job with them. Or if not, maybe, this will help me with Packers public relations. I would like to be in the sports industry."

For now, she'll continue to enjoy her summer with the Brewers, one race at a time.
